Thanks to reqbat for this: (Days #213 & 214)

I think, this is the version they used at the season finale for Big Love on Sunday. You know I love me some cover music.



I don't do a lot of fandom babbling about most of the stuff I watch, other people are far better at that than me. But Big Love is one of those guilty pleasure shows I've been watching. I started in with it at the very beginning, and I think (despite some of the drama/soapy plots) it's a really damn good show.

In the finale on Sunday, there was a good conversation between Bill and his first wife, Barb about polygamy and going public with who they are. There was a good line about how if it's always kept in the dark - if people don't know what it's really about - then it's always going to be about con men and perverts. I think that's a pretty powerful sentiment that can be applied to a lot of things right now. And that's not to discount that there are bad guys (real bad guys) but without open dialogue, people will always be scared.

And that's one of the many reasons I watch the show, it's a great drama, but they also aren't afraid to deal with some heavy issues in a way that other cable shows don't. Like Dale, the brief guest that came in to be Alby's boyfriend for few episodes. His conversations with his church leaders about being gay, had me in tears, really. I wish that clip was online so I could share it with you.

I also spent a lot of time on Sunday playing The Sims 3: World Adventures. Apparently, when I played before, I didn't get very into the whole dungeon exploring thing. But recently, I've been working my way through all the dungeons in Sims France, and having a lot of fun doing so. It's a huge time suck, but I like it.

Also - A funny story for a silly Monday:
So, a few weeks ago, I responded to a journalist request through HARO (help a reporter out). It was a woman asking women to talk about their lives - just a general what do you do sort of thing. Today, a few weeks later, I get a response from a GUY about this request response. He says that he works for the woman, and what they're actually looking for are women willing to keep a daily sex journal. Say what? Seriously.

OMG! So crazy. By the end I was like, they didn't say this was a series finale so what the hell? I'm a little worried about what the next season could hold because it seems like there's more bad possibilities than good ones. But I'll definitely be watching. I just hate that it's always so long between seasons.
